Winter Street Style

There are all kinds of cool looks to be had for winter but some of the most innovative turn up on the streets of the some of the coolest cities in the world.

 

For instance in Toronto, Canada things tend to get a bit chilly. Girls there can be seen in Toast skirts. These are skirts that fasten at the waist like a big wrap around skirt. They are very feminine and look great over pants. They are made of a very nice quilted warm fabric.

 

A big style for winter in New York, Vancouver,  Toronto and other big North American cities is the trend to wear oversized everything.  Even tiny women are seen in huge trench coats, long sloppy scarves and big socks that flow out of their boots.  The pants are warm and saggy and droop a bit and so do the oversized sweaters worn by these girls.  The coolest girls wear long kid gloves and roll up the sleeves of their trench coat.  Kid gloves with little pearl buttons or wool gloves that look like vintage gloves are all the rage.

 

Another trend has to do with the way women are wearing their scarves. The scarf should be long and thick and it should be looped several times around the neck. It cannot hang or dangle.

 

Vintage coats and especially vintage capes with a bit of a military flair are also all the rage.  The hippest capes are a dark military blue and hang to just below the knee.

 

Yet another trend that work best for the very long is to wear black Beatle style ankle boots with black tights and a black mini skirt or dress that is then topped with a very short pea coat.  The idea is that the pea coat length is no longer than the mini dress. This looks is also topped off with fingerless gloves and a thick scarf preferably in a color like olive or grey.

 

In some southern cities a new trend is turning up and that is to wear a cropped leather jacket with a full shirt tied around your waist. The arms at waist level and then left to dangle down the back tie this shirt. It is usually a plaid or tartan patterned shirt that is worn with blue jeans. It is a look that is popular with both female and male members of the younger set.
